Default Colorado's 3,400 voter de-registrations scaring Democrats

Colorado's 3,400 voter de-registrations scaring Democrats
Monica Showalter
July 15, 2017

Democrats have always dismissed Republican concerns about illegal voter registrations and evidence of fraudulent voting as pure fantasy. Why, no illegal immigrant would dream of voting in a U.S. election, despite demonstrating a penchant for lawbreaking by entering the U.S. illegally. There's no such thing as a multiple-county or multiple-state voters despite the assorted convictions of ACORN operatives, which tell a different story. There is no such thing as an illegal immigrant casting a ballot — despite big money for voter registration efforts in illegal immigrant areas. Meanwhile, the very idea that illegal votes would be heavily slanted toward benefiting Democrats — who, in the Hugo Chαvez style, offer free stuff from others' pockets — is unimaginable!

Turns out that what's going on in Colorado refutes each and every one of those echo-chamber "narratives."

Top officials in the Democratic National Committee are worried about a sudden drop in voter registrations in Colorado, concerned that President Donald Trump's new election commission is encouraging Democrats across the country to remove themselves from the electoral grid for fear of revealing personal information to the GOP leadership.

Led by DNC Chairman Tom Perez, they've begun an effort — in conjunction with the Colorado Democratic Party — to persuade other members of the party's rank-and-file to stay registered.

Now, make no mistake: the mainstream media are trying to spin the entire issue as one of "privacy" and "voter intimidation" just as the Democrats themselves are doing. Not once, for instance, in this piece, does the writer bring up that perhaps illegal aliens have registered in large numbers and now want to pull their names off the radar one step ahead of the law as the integrity of voter registrations and voting records is at long last being scrutinized — at the same time as an illegal immigration crackdown.

There's reason to think de-registrations are happening precisely because illegally registered voters don't want their records of illegal voting known. If they were known, they would become prosecutable crimes and would likely take the perpetrators out of the running for any sort of amnesty or other opportunity for naturalization in the future. Illegal aliens have their interests like anyone else, and they act in their interests. It's reasonable to suggest that illegally registered voters — who had been illegally voting in broad daylight — are now scurrying for the shadows. They took a benefit that didn't belong to them, canceled out the votes of legitimate citizens in a very purple swing state, and now wish to avoid any consequences.

Yet the media keep spinning the mass de-registrations as "privacy" concerns despite the fact that voter registrations are already all public. It's an unsubstantiated claim, in part because they sure as heck haven't provided even individual sob stories with names attached to demonstrate this claim. People who do have real privacy concerns (unrelated to the "privacy" of their illegally cast ballots) have options other than de-registering as a means of alleviating their concerns: Colorado allows for the provision of "private" registration for voters with a reasonable fear of jeopardy for one reason or another, were their data to be made public. Colorado voters use it. But not one of the 3,400 de-registrants running from the federal voter integrity team in Colorado seems to have done it.

Democrats are taking the privacy narrative a step farther by loudly claiming voter suppression without a drop of evidence there, either, claiming (probably falsely) that they are going to expend great effort beyond their loud noisemaking now to get those 3,400 de-registered voters (all of whom they imply are legitimate) back on the voter rolls.

"If you unregister, you are giving a victory to proponents of voter suppression," [DNC chair Tom] Perez said in an interview with McClatchy.

It's disingenuous, given the likely real reason the de-registrations are happening. Voter suppression? As if an illegal immigrant really would be concerned about his illegal vote being "suppressed" over the prospect of a one-way deportation ticket back to Honduras — where some real voter suppression might be found. Or, as if illegal aliens just naturally put Democrat victory interests in Colorado above their own prospects for amnesty and a green card, or ACORN multi-voters put Democratic Party victory interests above their prospects for another stretch in the hoosegow. Sorry, Tom, the whole claim won't wash.

Perez's yelling is a bid to cover up the likely reality that the 3,400 de-registered voters signal rampant illegal voting registration in exactly the place you would expect to find it — in an ultra-swing state whose elections have been won by razor-thin margins in at least the last three general elections. That it is Perez speaking out suggests a threatened rice bowl — and points to the reality that illegal voters vote Democrat. When the truth comes out from the commission on the de-registrations — and those 3,400 public documents should be examined by the federal commission as well — it may be a black mark on the history of the Democratic Party that they had won so many elections based on fraudulent Democrat votes cast by foreigners and criminals.

Forecast: The Tom Perez re-registration gambit will fail. And we won't hear a word about it in the coming media "narrative."

In Alabama they are giving the right to vote back to some convicted felons, who comes up with the crap? Here in Alabama you have to show a approved form of ID to vote and all you hear from the democrats is that it amounts to voter suppression. BULL! They just want to cheat. I wish that they would throw vote cheats in jail and take away their voting rights forever, likewise if you are convicted of a felony you forfeit your voting rights for ever. My 2 cents.
